How to relink blog posts to blog page.

Administering blog, I selected to add a new page, then changed my mind.  I clicked on move to trash not realizing it would move the entire blog page to trash.  I recovered the page from the trash but now it has no posts.  The posts are still listed in the posts section of the admin page so I assume they are in the mysql database.  Is there a way to reconnect the posts to the page so I can continue on?

Thanks

Go to Settings, Reading Settings.
If in Front page displays: "A static page (select below)" is selected then
in Posts page Dropdown: Select your Blog Page.

That is amazing!  Thank you so much.  I scoured the internet for answers and never found a solution.  Can you give me a tip on a learning resource?

Thanks,
John
